TexQuest Research Databases

Dayton ISD Library Services

What is a Database or Digital Resource?

The definition of a database is a structured collection of records or data that is stored in a computer system. It is a searchable, computerized file, often of periodical indexes that can be authenticated. A digital resource includes a database but also e-books, e-news, audio books, videos or any other digitized source used for research or information.
For usernames and passwords to any database,
ask your librarian or email:
